Jean Batten’s 1936 flight from England to New Zealand in a single-engine plane made of wood and fabric navigating with just a compass and a watch, is one of the extraordinary feats of the last century.

Yet when she successfully landed in Auckland the Mayor greeted her with the words, “Jean you are a very naughty girl, and really I think you want a good spanking for giving us such a terribly anxious time here.”

"A bold and confident performance that had the audience laughing out loud, in tears and on their feet at the end." - Rose Jackson, Glory Days Magazine

Presented by: DPA Chartered Accountants
